Massaged Kale Salad

1 bunch kale

salt and pepper to taste  

Olive oil

4tbsp raw apple cider vinegar or 1 lemon  

optional: raw garlic, chopped

how to: 

Rio or chop your kale leaves into a bowl. Toss with your lemon or vinegar and add olive oil to taste about 1/8 of a cup. If you are using raw garlic add it on top now and add salt and pepper to your liking. Begin to massage the salad with your hands by crunching, smooshing and mixing the greens together. Do this for about 2 to 3 minutes until the greens have broken down and are much smaller than when you started. Taste test and see if you need more salt or pepper or any other spices that you would like to add. Eat and enjoy. Dont forget to lick your fingers!
